Maybe people doing triathlons practice in open water now that's warmer?

Find water, jump. Not near of houses but almost anything else is ok.
Thats called jokamiehenoikeus "every mans right" (yes it does mean woman too despite of name) and it gives right to use rivers/lakes/nature/berries/etc as long as you dont harm it and arent too close of house. Fishing and hunting are limited tho.

If you cant see a home then just dive :)
